Magnum XR handlebar installation kits
Upstate New York based specialist Magnum Shielding Corporation unveils its new XR Handlebar Installation Kits, which feature a great fit and excellent quality at an economical price. Magnum offers the “convenience of easy to order part numbers (by application and handlebar heights) with everything needed for installation included right in the kit.”
XR installation kits are available for popular ABS and non-ABS Harley-Davidson motorcycles with 12” to 17” ape-hanger style handlebars installed and can be ordered either through Drag Specialties or directly from Magnum.
Two color combinations are available - OE black vinyl or clear coated stainless steel - with both featuring highly polished, chrome plated fittings.
All XR (which stands for ‘extreme response’) brake lines use an enhanced construction of heavy gauge stainless steel embedded in a tough, abrasion resistant nylon outer jacket that provides “outstanding durability and a superior braking response for safe riding.”
Magnum says that these brake line assemblies are not generic or universal style plumb together lines, but rather complete brazed assemblies that duplicate OE style fitments’ optimal appearance and easy no hassle professional installations. They are designed to exceed all DOT FMVSS-106 requirements for safe on-road use.
The stainless steel braided control cables are coated with a clear PVC non-yellowing jacket. As with the OE style black vinyl cables, both styles offer “exceptional protection” for paint or chrome. All cables have a low-effort, high-efficiency design that meets or exceeds all OE specifications for fitment, construction and endurance.
The kits include throttle and idle cables or throttle-by-wire extensions, clutch cable or XR hydraulic clutch line, XR brake lines, copper crush washers, hardware, turn signals and switch wiring extensions.
Noted in the market for premium Sterling Chromite and Black Pearl braids, Magnum’s General Manager, Tom Vierthaler, told AMD that “these new XR Installation Kits are the first economically priced kits we have ever offered, and given our reputation for accurate kit length fitments, this is nothing short of a home run for the industry.”
Company Founder and Owner Scott Hurwitz added that “while the pricing is easy on the wallet, there’s no compromise on quality. These kits offer all the performance, function and fitment attributes that our popular ‘Designer Series’ kits are known for, and are backed by the same warranty policy.”
